Handmade Crackle Gaiwan
Imagine hosting a dinner party or a tea party with your friends and family or trying to unwind after a stressful day at work. You are looking for the ultimate tea experience with the most decadent flavors and aromas. As you are bringing out your best tea to brew and you realize that you don’t have the right teapot to brew the tea. Just then, you wish you’ve had one “teaware to impress” or treat yourself that is unique and also perfect for brewing different types of tea.
This elegant handmade gaiwan is the “teaware to impress.” Designed by a famous ceramic artist Xu Xiaofeng, this one-of-a-kind gaiwan has beautiful crackles that create its distinctive aged look. You can showcase your tea brewing skills while enjoying the nuances of the aroma captured under the gaiwan lid.
As a bonus, customers love the way its smooth texture feels on your hand when brewing. The lid also sits much below the rim so that your fingers can stay away from the heat of hot water. This modern antique also changes in color over time as you brew more tea. All crackles are naturally formed and unique to each piece.
For a complete experience, pair this gaiwan with our Handmade Crackle Teacup.

About Ceramic Artist Xu Xiaofeng
With nearly 20 years of experience in ceramic design and creation, Xu Xiaofeng is critically acclaimed in the ceramic art community. Originally from Dehua, a county famous for its Blanc de Chine in central Fujian province, Xu grew up deeply influenced by the ceramics culture. He began his career as an apprentice at a porcelain factory in Dehua and trained in ceramics production. As he became interested in the development and creation of enamel works later in his career, he went to Henan, the origin of the kiln, to better understand the enamel culture, and went to Taiwan to work with contemporary artists on enamel production. Today, he is known for his unique high-quality enamel works.
